mean, the other big story in the nfl yesterday was the san francisco 49ers who have a new starting quarterback, colin kaepernick, who was given the starting job because alex smith was out for a week with a concussion, and now a lot of people are saying, wow, alex smith losing his job is an incentive for players not to report when they get head injuries. we know how conclusively they're he linked. i do have to say one thing, though. you're absolutely right, tamron, that people have different ways of dealing with things and perhaps being on the field. had a healing effect on the players themselves. i think the nfl as the largest sports force and cultural force in this country has a broader responsibility to say some things are more important than football. >> dave, it's always great to have you on. i want to report to our audience the associated press says police hope to deliver an investigation report to prosecutors tuesday detailing what caused kansas city chiefs linebacker javon belcher to kill his girlfriend and himself. we could have an update on the incident which, of course, i

home buyers in san francisco. the key thing is hurting the rest. look at the premiums that are being charged. if we can maintain that focus, the risk regiment focus that the fha has taken on, there is an argument to say, let's not over correct in a time when there is no support system coming down the pipe. >> you talk about the importance of having good underwriting standards. one of the other criticisms of fha is that it is a government agency that is not as nimble. long-term, if you have 3% down payment, it is one thing to trust that the lenders to use the program will operate according to the guidelines, but does the institution have the bandwidth to change circumstances? even if it were not as severe as 2006, say we go through a period where congress allows downpayment-funded assistance. how able is the fha to set those proper underwriting standards? >> there is no question that the fha any other agency needs to be more organized than what we have today. fhfa it is 80 years old. it has never required taxpayer money. the fact that we have a 1000- year flat and fha has plans for a

smashes them -- meshes them together to see if we can make an even better san francisco. we have two other supervisors who may be coming later. we're all part of the initial group of policymakers at city hall who want to hear news views and ideas on the new collaborative economy. we're interested in it because it has aspects that have piqued our interest, about hoour environment, how to improve life for more people, how to make an expensive city more affordable to more people, how to utilize the strengths of the city as a great tourist city. how we can get more folks to come and experience the wonders of the city. maybe they will make their stake here. these panel members have decided to make their stake here. they risked reputation, may be small amounts of money. if they had a lot of money, they may not have had to start this. they have also done it for the right reasons. they want to experience the city in a different way, but one that is in the tradition of san francisco and is reflective of mine, welcoming more people to share in the economy. hopefully the right reasons will
